IO390 Dip Stick tube issue
I figured I would put this out there. I could not get the dip stick tube in place--this is the tube that attaches to the engine. It kept cross threading and I could not get it to tighten by hand. I tried to fix it, but i could not get it to thread in.
I emailed Jeff at Lycoming and they painted and sent me a new one. This one threaded in by hand with absolutely no issues.
The point is that if you have a bad one, then Lycoming will replace it with a good one.
